A Dozen Reasons to Become an Owner of Chicago Market!

Chicago Market currently has more than 1375 Owners...which puts us 625 shy of the minimum number of Owners we need by December 31 to secure funding to continue design and construction of the Gerber building.

That's a lot of people. In fact, it breaks down to the Co-op needing to ink more than 6 Owners each and every day.

So...is there a single, convincing argument for WHY we believe becoming an Owner of Chicago Market is one of the most important decisions you'll make this year? Actually, No. In fact, there's almost as many reasons for buying into the Co-op as there are current Owners!

If you're searching for just the right reason to become an Owner, relax! Take a look at some of the ideas that have prompted your fellow Chicagoans to become a part of the Chicago Market community and see if you can see yourself among us....

The Race Towards 2000 New Owners by December 31 Heats Up!

Those two numbers hold the key to whether the Co-op can qualify for the bank loans and other funding needed to build our community-owned grocery store. Do the math, and it’s clear that the Coop needs to ink 6 new Owners every day between now and the end of the year to make it happen. That’s why Chicago Market is holding events and info sessions at a record pace! 

So...what has Chicago Market been up to?
